Kickoff Weekend

Baylor Kickoff Weekend is a multi-day opening celebration to the Baylor Football season that begins with the Baylor Line Signing and Freshman Class Picture at McLane Stadium in the Baylor Line Tunnel. The weekend culminates in the first student tailgate of the year complete with music, student organization cook-off, games, and more.

Thursday August 29th – Baylor Line Signing/Class Picture
6 p.m – 11 p.m. | McLane Plaza

Join the newest members of the Baylor Line and help welcome them as they receive their line Jerseys at McLane Stadium before the first game of the season. Seniors, be sure to stop by to have a chance to sign the Baylor Line at the Baylor Line Tunnel and place a special lock somewhere at McLane! All incoming (freshman and transfer) students will have a chance to connect with those who are also receiving their line jerseys. There will also be free food, a chance to help build mascot effigies of the SFA Lumberjacks that will be later used in the bear habitat for Joy and Lady on game day August 31st, spirit giveaways, and the freshman class picture. All students are encouraged to come and wear your line jerseys!

The tailgate will be full of fun to culminate the weekend with DJs, video games, bounce houses, and confetti cannons to announce the arrival of the Baylor Football season.
